I see what you are saying, Mando, about the drop-off when the lyrics start. The energy picks back up at 3:30 and again around 5:25 just as he finishes singing those sections.
Is this Jerry more confident playing guitar than singing? Or, is he bringing it down while he is singing so that he can take it THAT MUCH Farther back up?

Other than that opening, the organ seems to mimic the guitar in intensity as they progress through the song. I just don't know and I have no musical training.

I just LOVE that guitar tone during the opening---if I played, that's what I would want to play (and Iron Man and Smoke on the Water and She Ran Calling Wildfire)
